Chocolate Coconut Almond Fat Bombs
I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't eating a fat bomb as I write this blog post. Since discovering these exist, I've been keeping my freezer stocked with them every week! It is safe to say these brown little bombs of magic (no, not that kind...) have become a staple in my life.

When you are eating a low carb high fat diet, or keto diet, fat bombs are a wonderful way to get healthy fats into your diet. Some of my other favorite sources of fat include avocados or full fat coconut milk. You will notice that healthy, rich sources of fat like these foods I mentioned satisfy your hunger.

Fat bombs make a great sugar free snack as well. Since I have been following the candida diet, I have been actively seeking out ways I can enjoy my favorite foods (chocolate, chocolate, and oh did I mention chocolate?) minus the sugar. I discovered fat bombs at my dear friend Karen Solomon's home. I visit her often to help her with her business, and I always head straight to her freezer where she stores them.

Crunchy & Chocolaty

These rich chocolaty treats have the perfect crunch because of the cacao nibs and coconut flakes. For a savory touch, I invite you to add on your favorite nut butter if you feel so inspired. The other day I made homemade coconut whipped cream and it was DIVINE.  

You are welcome to adjust the sweetness in your fat bombs. I am using monk sugar, and the amount I use in this recipe is perfect for my taste buds. Not too sweet, not too bitter.

  1. It is clear for me that the food we eat affects the way our mind works. Bad food gives bad thoughts. Once the lifestyle is clean enough, such as the vegan + gluten free, the options are many to experiment! Everything will depend on your particular story. I am curious about your current diet since the keto vegan is wow! Almost a myth haha! As you know most people on keto eat meat and lard for instance. Of course I know some vegans doing keto 🙂 You are my heroine so I know you will take the best out of this experience, and I hope it gives you the benefits that you are looking for. As long we have a good health, not possible to attain perfection, but I mean, good enough health, well… As you know I am also experimenting with my diet, but my journey is going towards raw foods and fruit based but, I am also under construction haha! I love the passion you put in everything you do, I really want you to be happy ALWAYS! You deserve it! <3 I wish you never get tired of my craziness XD because.. I don't get tired of yours! Perhaps loving ourselves plus loving someone special is the key to love everything around us, I say "seize the opportunity of loving someone because if you let the opportunity pass, well it may never return" 🙂 I am glad to have you in my life Marina!! Every time I say "I love you" makes my day better, a magic spell to change my view of the world!! So… I LOVE YOU and everything gets brighter!! With all my love, B.
